Being Naturally Christian
Today is my school day but I would like to take some time to rant about an amazing conversation I had with my friend yesterday. We have been sharing wisdom on the Martial Arts for quite some times, and I really wish he was part of Freddie's Modern Kung Fu but unfortunately, I do not think he would have the time to. Nonetheless, he is a very nice person and it is completely impossible to come to an argument with him. If you do argue with him, I am afraid that you are an idiot. Basically, no one has ever expose him to Christianity since he was a kid but he made his research and realize within himself that Jesus Christ is his number one spiritual guide. Yes, he also look into the wisdom of the East as I am doing right now because a Martial Artist should be one of the wisest people who ever lived. Anyway, for realizing the power of Jesus Christ within him, it is in my understanding that he became his own Jesus Christ. I used to be a Catholic myself and then going to church into different denomination of Christianity. Soon, I realize that I was wasting my time. Therefore, I stop going to church once and for all and start looking within myself. I realize that I was never someone who wants to mold himself into a religion. I just want to be my authentic self. Another reason why I stop going to church is that I was forced to be religious. That's the problem of most parents: they do not care about who their children really is as long as the children is their carbon copy. They will impose their ideas, superstitions, all these disease on their kids; to me it is just another form of bullying because the kid does not have a choice but to take these diseases. How can the child escape from it? She has no power over her parents! But sooner or later, they will come out of that mold whether the parents agree or disagree. One of the reasons why a lot of people in the West do not understand Christ is because they were pushed to become Christian. They will go to Church but wait until it is time to go home. I cannot blame them. That is exactly how I felt. I feel like I was never really Christian, Buddhist, Taoist or anything. I am just working hard towards becoming a Martial Artist. A Martial Artist to me never mold himself or herself; he is not bound by any religion. As for my friend here, I respect him for realizing the purity of Christianity not the garbage out there like Catholicism, Protestantism, Jehovah Witness or whatever. I take no pastor, priest, missionary seriously. They are not spiritual; they are just scholars who act spiritual by talking about wisdom but never really live it. In fact, they tend to condemn anyone who does not follow their instructions. They will brainwash their people at their so-called church. If anyone is trying to get me to church, I am sorry but you came to the wrong guy. I believe that my friend understood Jesus Christ more than any deacon or missionary because he just express his Christianity without trying to convert anyone. If you agree with him, that's great. If you do not, that is fine as well. That is how it is supposed to be; not molding anybody else into your belief. That is not natural. Anything unnatural will come to an early end. I will always respect him because he is being naturally Christian.
